I am serving our mission in a new department of FOCUS as a Manager in Talent and Leadership Development. Here we are placing our emphasis on a world-class investment in our staff to ensure we hire enough of the right people to accomplish all the plans God has for our mission and to develop those people as leaders who can assume all the responsibilities to which God will call them (in or out of FOCUS). I have always had a passion for leadership development since I was in college, and the Lord has gifted me a knack for problem-solving and finding a need for a process that will help people be better at what they love to do. I'm excited to see how my service impacts our mission to make disciples of all nations.
When I was in high school, I had a radical encounter with God's love through the Mass. I carried that experience with me into college, but it slowly faded as I got more involved in sorority life, residence life, and even student senate. I remained faithful to the Church, but I got caught up in the busyness of being a "successful student." In my last year of college, I led a bible study of freshmen ladies, and it changed how I viewed my role in the success of God's plan of reaching souls for His Kingdom. I was made to be His instrument. Instead of trying to do work for Him, I was able to let Him do His work through me. In four years on campus at three different universities with very different cultures, this has always rung true. It can be true for all missionaries and students as well. This is exactly why FOCUS exists: to build relationships with students and introduce them to Jesus Christ and his Church, empowering them to do the same for others.
When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus and now at the Denver Support Center. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you. I'd be honored to share this mission with you!
We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.
By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.
